I have 3 front usb2 ports. 2 of them are behind a closed door and the other one is beside the compact flash, SmartMedia, etc. ports. This one port that is with the Smartmedia, etc. has quit working when I insert my flash drive. The flash drive works in all other USB2 ports and in other computers. I thought that maybe this port had gone bad but now I'm not sure. I have checked my device manager and everything looks fine. There is no problems showing in the device manager. But, if I click on Disk Drives in the device manager while the flash drive is plugged into the port that isn't working, it shows Generic-Compact Flash USB device. Is this just a Windows default setting or is it trying to work and can't? I haven't used my flash drive for some time so I don't know which restore point to use to try to restore it back to when it was working. Plus, I don't use the Compact flash, etc. ports so I can't tell if it's just this particular hardware that isn't working. Can anyone make any sense out of this. I have tried my mp3 players there also and they don't work but will in the others. I know I can just use the other ports and forget it but this has me stumped and that makes me want to work it out if I can. Thanks for your time.
